Judge puts hold on Trump’s federal election interference case while appeals process plays out

By Stermy 2 Min Read

The judge overseeing the federal election interference case against former President Donald Trump in Washington, D.C., has decided to stay the proceedings while the appeals process unfolds.

This decision follows a request from Trump’s legal team for a stay, which was opposed by special counsel Jack Smith’s team. They believed certain filings could proceed to maintain the trial’s scheduled March 4 date.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan clarified that the delay doesn’t hinder her ability to enforce protective orders, Trump’s release conditions, or the limited gag order preventing him from making statements about potential witnesses or attacking the special counsel, Jack Smith, and his team, as well as court personnel.

Earlier in the week, the special counsel sought Supreme Court intervention to expedite a resolution and prevent delays to the trial date. The court committed to considering the request promptly.

In August, Trump pleaded not guilty to charges related to an alleged “criminal scheme” aimed at overturning the 2020 election results.

The accusations include involving “fake electors,” using the Justice Department for “sham election crime investigations,” attempting to manipulate the vice president to “alter the election results,” and promoting false claims during the Jan. 6 riot.

Trump vehemently denies any wrongdoing, characterizing the charges as a “persecution of a political opponent.”
